"Hawaii Five-0" season 7 is fresh off its 150th episode. Steve McGarett and his team continue their mission to protect the state and while doing so, they might meet some characters from "MacGyver." The two CBS reboots are under Peter Lenkov and the executive producer is seriously considering a crossover between the two.
"Hawaii Five-0" And "MacGyver" Crossover
"Hawaii Five-0" and "MacGyver" have several things in common but two of the most notable are the fact that they are both reboots and they have a common executive producer. There have been predictions that Lenkov is planning a crossover between the two shows.
In an interview, Lenkov admitted that he had plans for a crossover. He alluded to the pilot episode of "MacGyver" where Jack Dalton (George Eads) had a flashback to his time in Afghanistan. The shot was of a gun's saddle with the "Aloha" marking on it.
Lenkov explained that they planted this in the series to provide a connection between McGarrett and Dalton. The two supposedly know each other during their military days. While Lenkov wants to pursue a crossover episode and he is hoping that it could work, there are no concrete plans yet to have an episode featuring a "Hawaii Five-0" and "MacGyver" crossover.
"Hawaii Five-0" Season 7
"Hawaii Five-0" season 7 continues to heat up Friday nights and there is no denying that this reboot is among the most successful ones in TV history. The series is still capable of holding an audience even after seven seasons. Despite Alex O'Loughlin's possible departure after "Hawaii Five-0" season 8, Lenkov holds firm to the belief that the show could continue for a few more years.
Storywise, the series is becoming more interesting especially with Lenkov's cues that Catherine Rollins and McGarett could have a second chance at a relationship. Dubbed as McRoll, the love team maintains a lot of fans who are hoping that the two will end up together. According to the producer, Catherine plays a vital role in the entire franchise. At the moment, there is no future episode where Catherine is expected to appear yet but it is definitely not the end of her relationship with McGarrett.
"Hawaii Five-0" season 7 airs on Fridays 9/8c and "MacGayver" airs on the same day at 8/7c on CBS.
